Campus Profile: Sarah Deluca

This week’s campus profile is Sarah Deluca!

Sarah is a junior nursing student from Akron, Ohio. She’s known for her outgoing personality, her dedication to her nursing career, and her loyalty to her friends.

Her Campus: When you’re not really busy with your nursing workload, what are you most involved with on campus?

Sarah Deluca: I do a lot with my sorority, Pi Beta Phi. I’m the housing chair this semester as well as the co-captain for our relay for life team. I’ve also helped to plan our spring formal, and I’m a co-captain for variety show.

 

HC: Wow, that sounds like a lot!

SD: Yeah, but I do it because I love it. It’s a nice break from nursing school, and it’s helped me establish a close-knit group of friends.

 

HC: What’s the coolest thing about being in your sorority?

SD: Well, when I joined, my mom became my sister, so that’s pretty cool. My mom and I are really close, so it’s cool that I joined the same sorority she was in. She passed down her pin to me and a Pi Phi teddy bear her big made her years ago. I also visited her house at Ohio State and she showed me the rooms she lived in and shared some of her favorite college memories with me.

HC: That sounds pretty awesome. So, what exactly do you want to do with your nursing degree?

SD: My goal is to become a nurse practitioner. I’d like to work with women’s health or in the ER. I’m an adrenaline junkie and I like the fast paced environment.

 

HC: Speaking of being fast-paced, I hear you’ve moved around a lot. Tell me about that

SD: I lived in Shanghai from ages 11-14, which was a  really crazy experience. When I found out I was moving there, all I knew was that I expected it to look like the setting of Mulan. But when I got there I found out that the food was amazing, and I got to learn Mandarin, which I still keep up with today. Then, I lived in Luxembourg from ages 15-18. Since it’s so small it’s easy to travel. I got to go to different countries with my sports teams to compete, which was always awesome

HC: Was it hard to integrate back into American culture for college?

SD: It was kind of hard. But honestly, living abroad made me who I am; I’d probably be a different person if I didn’t have that experience.

HC: What’s the best memory you’ve had here at CWRU?

SD: Freshman year, I went to my big Christina’s suite in the village to study, but we ended up making a huge pillow fort and just hanging out all night. That’s definitely one of my favorite memories.
